Merrill Bridge Road Park is now officially an off-leash dog park. It took the group of dog-owners there two years to get the park redesigned. Now there is somewhere close to East Lynn Park where people can take their dogs and not bother the kids. Molson, above, is delighted.
We started these ‘re-skilling’ sessions last year to take advantage of the local produce at our door step. They were so successful we’re bringing them back this year. First up? Strawberries. Learn how to bottle up that sweet taste of early summer and enjoy it all year long with Emerie from Bernadin at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 23rd at the Danforth Mennonite Church at 2174 Danforth Ave. A donation of $5 is suggested. RSVP to Mary-Margaret McMahon at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the DECA tent at the East Lynn Market.
Last Day Music Festival
Come celebrate the last day of school with some cool music, pizza and pop. This Friday is the Last Day Music Festival at St. Brigid’s school yard. This is a serious rock and roll show featuring the under 20 set. It’s from 7 – 9:30 p.m. and a suggested donation of $5 gets you a slice of pizza and a drink. If you take your kids, they just might think you’re cool.
